About Our School

Award-winning education

As part of the award-winning Brighton College family of schools, academic excellence is at the very heart of our offer, combined with exceptional pastoral care, inspiring facilities and much more.

We want our pupils to be curious, confident and, above all, good, kind human beings.

Why Brighton College Prep Kensington

1. United Kingdom School of the Decade

We are excited to be part of the award-winning Brighton College family of schools.

2. Innovation

In our state-of-the-art Makerspace, pupils use green-screen technology and 3D printing to craft and construct. It is a creative space where pupils bring their ideas to life and develop skills such as communication, collaboration and advanced problem solving.

3. London is our Classroom

With the Natural History Museum, the V&A, the Science Museum and many more museums and galleries on our doorstep, we have access to the very best educational and cultural highlights as part of our daily school life.

4. A bespoke door-to-door bus service is available

In keeping with Brighton College’s commitment to the environment, we encourage our families to walk, cycle or scoot to school and we run a bespoke door-to-door bus service available from Year 1, complete with chaperone, for morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up.

5. World-Class Sports Facilities

Our Kensington location means that we can make the most of the amazing sporting facilities we have on our doorstep. Pupils from Year 3 and above have weekly swimming lessons at Imperial College next door and we regularly visit Hyde Park for sport lessons.

6. Random Acts of Kindness

Kindness is the currency at Brighton College.  At the start of term, the Head hands out colourful wristbands which remind pupils to be helpful and generous-spirited each and every day.

7. Story Of Our Land

As part of their curriculum, our pupils learn about Britain from the beginning of time, spanning history, geography, philosophy, politics and religion. This course allows pupils to develop a coherent narrative of how the past has shaped the country we live in today.

8. Our SUPER Curriculum

The SUPER Curriculum is an academic enrichment programme for Years 7 and 8 and prepares our pupils for the next stage of their education. It incorporates practical, skills-based learning, including personal finances, online safety, study skills, public speaking and team building. Our pupils leave us ready for the real world.

9. Social Entrepreneurship

Pupils are encouraged to give back to the community they live in; from visiting local senior citizens, to running an eco-warriors project in our Forest School, we nurture outward-looking children. We also open eyes to the world beyond London, involving our children and teachers in global charities.

10. Beyond Brighton

With a huge range of activities from mindfulness, cookery, dance, debating, public speaking, school magazine, disco yoga and presentation skills, our pupils are offered a wide and varied programme of opportunities to build a skill set to be used long after they leave Prep School.
